Future Transport Strategy

Delivering benefits to our customers and communities

Continuing the next phase of transport improvements

Since Future Transport 2056 was first launched in March 2018, we have continued to deliver improvements to infrastructure and services for our customers. The Future Transport vision is being delivered through a series of supporting plans, which include initiatives from the Greater Sydney and Regional Services and Infrastructure Plans, to be delivered or investigated in the first 10 years of the strategy.

Projects already delivered include the Metro North West Line, L2 Randwick and L3 Kingsford light rail lines, and 24 additional Waratah trains to support increased demand on the rail network, as well as Newcastle Light Rail, M1 Pacific Motorway Upgrades, Northconnex, the M8 and the new M4. These projects have provided benefits across the community, including improving connectivity, efficiency, safety and accessibility.

We have also introduced contactless payments, trialled cutting-edge technology such as connected and automated vehicles in both metropolitan and regional NSW, launched an on-demand bus service in Wagga Wagga and invested in modernising the Regional Rail Fleet. Investigations are also underway for a NSW fast rail network, which will identify opportunities for regional growth and improved services.

We are working with partners and collaborating across the NSW Government to redevelop and renew urban precincts across metropolitan Sydney to create neighbourhoods that are connected by public transport, walkable, sustainable and attractive to residents, visitors and businesses. Examples include the Circular Quay Renewal, and Central Station Renewal and Tech Central.

The NSW Government continues its largest ever infrastructure program with the delivery of a record $72.2 billion investment in transport projects over the next four years. This includes significant investments in Sydney Metro City & Southwest, Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport, Sydney Metro West, New England Highway Improvements, Princes Highway upgrades, WestConnex, Sydney Gateway, Parramatta Light Rail and the More Trains, More Services program.
